Catalyze provides a HIPAA compliant, HITRUST CSF Certified platform with modules to handle, store and transmit protected health information securely in the cloud.

The Catalyze technology is two-pronged: There is the compliance layer, called Stratum and Redpoint, which company executives called “an integration Sherpa.”
